Some of area's finest will be on hand for spring scrimmage
Spring brings a lot more than flowers to the valley.
This year, it brings the sound of popping pads and some college football to town.
The University of Montana Western is treating the Mission Valley with its annual spring football scrimmage on Ronan High School's new football field this Saturday. This is a great chance for football fans to watch the Bulldogs prepare for this fall's football schedule, as well as see some of our local graduates perform on the field again.
Western's squad includes football players from Charlo, Ronan and Polson who are looking forward to performing again in front of their local fans.
The Western scrimmage starts at 1 p.m., but show up early and watch some of Ronan's young Little Guy football players scrimmage at 10 a.m. They'll scrimmage again at the halftime of the Western scrimmage.
Admission is only $2 and proceeds will benefit the Elementary Flag Football Program.
Saturday should be a perfect day to enjoy some spring football, with some of the brightest of our prep graduates that are shining at the college level, as well as the youngsters who might be following them in 10 years or so.
